Sea Kayaking Isle of Man - British Columbia.

Well, in a week or so I'll be back in Canada. For now visits are restricted to Google Earth and reviewing old photographs taken on my previous visit last year. British Columbia really is a special place. I guess it depends on what you want from a holiday, or even a potential emigration spot. Vancouver Island has what I yearn for. Everything is just on such a different scale. The sky is big, it's lower border framed by huge snow capped mountains, carpeted in endless forests. The wildlife is abundant. After a short while you don't even turn your head when a bald eagle sores overhead. I would turn my head if a black bear approached I think. Even more alarming is the fact that a great white shark was caught not far from where I'll be staying (and kayaking) on Vancouver Island! (read more) . Still, I enjoy paddling in advanced conditions and this is just a different slant on it. You can follow my adventures in Canada right here on kayakblog as they happen.
